5. Tanning Oil – Put in a spray bottle, spray on to keep skin moisturized.

6. Cheekbone Highlighter – Apply a small amount on cheekbones over makeup.

7. Defrizzer of Split Ends – Just put a tiny amount on your hands and run them through the frizzy areas.
8. Metabolism Booster – 2 tablespoons per day are proven to rev up your metabolism.
9. For Your Owie – Although you may not be ready to give up your Neosporin, coconut oil can even be used as a topical protector for wounds, shielding them with a thin chemical layer from outside contaminants. You can apply a small amount of coconut oil to small scrapes and cuts.
10. Breath Freshener: Coconut oil has anti fungal and antibacterial properties. Gargling for 20 minutes with a spoonful of oil (aka oil pulling) can help clear up germs in the mouth, leading to fresher breath, whiter teeth, and healthier gums.
